I have a Dell case right now, and plan on moving my current setup to a new case.
My current one has a Micro ATX board. I plan on getting an i5 2500k, not sure which mobo yet. I might get a standard ATX board, but I'm not concerned about that at the moment.
At the most, the case should accommodate up to a standard ATX, since I haven't decided on ATX or Micro ATX yet. I have two DVDR/CDRW combo drives, and only one HDD. I plan to get a SSD too. So I don't need it to hold a ton of drives. If it does, not much of a big deal tho.
Of course I need mic and headphone jacks in the front, and I prefer two USB drives in the front. I want it to be pretty cool, I probably won't be doing enough gaming/OCing where I'd need liquid cooling. So I want some spaces for fans when I feel like putting them in. Eventually I will OC, so I do need some extra fan spots.
LEDs don't really matter to me, nor do glass plates. I don't need anything too fancy.
I have been looking at the CM HAF 912 and the Anted 300.
I would like to stay under 50 dollars, but I'm open to any suggestions
EDIT: Forgot to say, as of now I only have 1 PCIe device, my GPU. It's not much (Radeon 6670) but eventually I might upgrade to one that would use more room

Any ideas? Also, I think I'm going to go Micro ATX on this build (considering I won't use crossfire/SLI, and I don't have much use for the extra PCIe slots.
